I take everything but the kitchen sink! But my dad is even worse! He has more clothes than I do XD

I used to pack almost everything I owned until the fees on overweight luggage started.Now I'm trying to pack a little bit lighter when we go away....

my packing trick is that if you pack white, tan, and black shoes and purses you can match any outfit. I would say I'm a medium packer, but I always pack more than I need.

I'm a terrible matter if I pack heavy or light, I never seem to pack the things I really need!

Used to be terrible at packing - especially with the amt of shoes! But now I easily pack everything in to a carry on, and never feel like I don't have enough clothes.

Light! Typically, I just fill up my overnight bag or backpack, even for week+ vacations... lugging a bunch of stuff when I travel is just a downer!

I've traveled a lot, however I'm still a heavy packer. I'm always convinced I won't have what I want! (Which is true--no matter how much I bring there's always something I wish I had brought instead.) I wish there was a way you could pack your whole closet with it wherever you went--like have it magically teleport to you haha.

I cannot seem to leave anything behind when I travel. It sucks b/se it cuts down on what you can bring back.

i lived out of suitcases and cars for a couple of years, so i'm proud to say i've mastered the art of light packing. and it is definitely an art. i went on a week-long trip for work and packed a very small suitcase...half-full of snacks, because i had packed so light i didn't know what else to fill it with!! haha...

Light. I'm really paranoid that I'll leave something I love in a foreign country, so I only bring one carryon and one personal bag. I travel 3+ times a year, so I've mastered packing light. It's all about bringing day-to-night clothes and versatile accessories. However, I tend to overpack with cosmetics. I just can't leave my facial masks, serums, creams...

still heavy; although I haven't traveled by plane since they started charging for all luggage (I'm really going to have to make some changes). but I can't survive without a lot of clothing options - the two times that I seriously underpacked I was in bad need of warm and dressy clothing...

I used to pack everything but the kitchen sink until I got burned with some hefty fees at the airport for being over the weight limit. I learned to pack the bare essentials.
